EE launches the Huawei E5776 – UK’s first next-generation 4G Device

EE launches the Huawei E5776   UKs first next generation 4G Device

Today EE have announced the launch of the UK’s first first next-generation 4G device, the Huawei E5776 mobile Wi-Fi hotspot.

It’s a pretty regular Wi-Fi hotspot that allows up to ten wi-fi enabled devices to access the internet on the EE network. The difference, of course, is that it uses next-generation 4G data speeds.

In exceptionally complex and technical terms, 4G (or LTE, to give it its proper name) is super fast mobile data, whereas next-generation 4G is super-dooper fast mobile data.

The one sticking point is that the next-generation 4G network won’t be switched on until June. Until then it will still allow access to the EE standard 4G network (reception permitting).

However, Rhys Saunders, Sales Director at Huawei Device, still enthused that:

We are delighted to be developing and rolling out the very latest 4G mobile technology with EE in the UK. The Huawei E5776 mobile WiFi means all manner of connected devices can take advantage of the new superfast network speeds EE is making available in the UK.

The Huawei E5776 is free on any of EE’s existing 4GEE Mobile Broadband plans, which start at £12.99 per month with 1GB of data, and work upwards from there. Special business plans are also available.

There’s also a 30 day free trial plan if you want to try before you buy.

    This would actually be a handy thing if it were not for the data allowance thing going on with EE. 1GB will last the average user these days all of… 10 minutes? And that’s only if they are going careful. It’s almost not worth bothering offering 1GB on a mobile broadband type thing these days. You only have to have to take your eye off Windows for 5 minutes before it reboots, downloading 1GB of updates, and that’s your allowance gone.

    I think I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but it really does bother me that they are not doing anything about it!

    Another broken record here, there is zero point in a 4g tariff of 1gig a month. You may as well stay on a normal 3g tariff, I doubt very much if you’ll notice any ‘real world’ difference.

  • Glad to know someone else is as potty over these wonderful, portable devices.

    They are like carrying a personal key to Aladdin’s cave.

    I daren’t tell you how many tablets I’ve got. I may have to start taking tablets for the tablets.
